If you're a fan of vintage cymbals, you need to check out this incredibly playable 16" hi-hat from Cymbal & Gong's Holy Grail series.
Overall, the word "smooth" can be used to describe several parameters of this hi-hat. Whether it's the way it crashes when opened, the way it spreads out between the rest of your drum set, or the way it responds when you gently lift your foot off the pedal, this hi-hat is smooth!
The attack is nice and tight, especially considering its size, with a really good width that gives the impression of a "mature" hi-hat when played. The hi-hat takes its place and blends perfectly with the rest of your sound.
If you play in a big band - check!
If you play vintage rock - check!
If you play jazz music in general - check!
If you play funk and groovy stuff - check!
There are many possibilities. Regardless, it's hard not to smile when playing this hi-hat from Cymbal & Gong.
